Default Life in jail for killer drivers?


"Dangerous drivers could now face life in jail under tough new laws that are being considered by the government following outrage from families at 'pathetic' sentences for killer motorists.

Robert Buckland, QC, the solicitor-general, said that the sentences would apply to people who caused death by dangerous or careless driving, while a new offence of causing serious injury by careless driving would also come into law.

He added that the government wants to toughen laws, with ministers saying that drivers who cause death by speeding, racing, or using a +++mobile phone+++ (EMPHASIS MINE) could face sentences similar to those given out for manslaughter."
